Naturopath‘s Tip of the Week: Magnesium
This weeks post features a guest piece from Broadway Wellness’ own Dr. Krista Moyer:
Magnesium is my favourite mineral! It has so many functions in the body, & I find that people are so often showing signs of deficiency. Magnesium is the main mineral used by your adrenal glands. In a hectic life, your adrenal glands require a lot of magnesium. Your muscles also love magnesium, and when deficient, your muscles will easily feel tight, sore, and some people often experience insomnia, cramps & headaches. Supplementing with sufficient, and highly absorbable forms of magnesium can be a great addition to your overall health.
If you’re not sure if you’re eating enough of magnesium rich foods, here’s a great little infographic on healthy foods high in magnesium.

Using food as medicine is an important part of any treatment plan designed by your Vancouver Naturopath. (more…)
